Vision and Aims
Kilwinning Academy aims to deliver learning opportunities of the highest quality for all our young people through a framework of shared values, underpinned by a mutual trust and respect amongst school staff, young people, parents, carers and community partners, with the child at the centre.
Ambition – To be the best we can be.
Belonging – To foster a shared sense of commitment to our school community.
Inspiration – To have experiences which ignite our passion for learning.
Dedication – To believe that success comes through effort and to demonstrate this every day.
Responsibility – To be accountable for our words, actions and our learning.
Respect – To celebrate our differences and treat one another with kindness and compassion, caring for our mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.
Our Columba 1400 graduates, at the end of the programme in March 2012, committed to establishing whole school values to help develop a sense of ‘who we are’ as a school community.
After a lengthy and comprehensive consultation process which involved Columba 1400 graduates presenting to school staff, parents, members of our wider community and in the region of 800 young people, we arrived at a set of 6 core values.
